Default value for a selectOneListbox

I have this listbox:

<h:selectOneListbox id="newStatus" size="1" value="#{thisIssue.status}">
<f:selectItems value="#{dropDown.statusList}"/>

What I would like is for the value to appear in the listbox to match what is in thisIssue.status. How can I do this because right now, I get the first value of dropDown.statusList instead of the value that is in thisIssue.status.

Am I missing something here?

Take the default value as the default value of your backing bean
